We really enjoyed the tour and Pat was a great guide and a very interesting person to converse with. The food was excellent...the best I had so far in Thailand. I am definitely recommending this to my family and friends.

We did the tour (2 families with kids from 7 to 13) with Mitch who was super friendly. Everything was perfect and it allows to go out from the traditional tourist path. Strongly recommend.

We didn't have any "Holiday" vaccinations just made sure our regular ones were up to date and wore lots of bug spray. Just stay away from stagnant water as that's a breeding ground for bugs and mosquitoes. Have fun!!!
